A pair of sugar tongs is a wonderful addition to your absinthe accessories collection, and a great talking point when inviting friends over for the evening with the green fairy.
Sugar tongs have a long history connected with both absinthe and tea drinking! In the past, a sugar loaf would be broken up, and sugar tongs were then a convenient and hygienic way to serve oneself a sugar lump. Later on granulated sugar came to dominate the sugar scene, however to this day tongs remain the most elegant way to serve a sugar cube!
Using the tongs, grasp a sugar cube from a plate of cubes, and place gently on your absinthe spoon.
